, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond party. they're not republicans and democrats in new jersey, they're just americans in need. and those messages, of course, resonate with americans in general. they also happen to be part of what the president and what governor christie is talking about. you know, this is the kind of politics that independent voters, moderates, the gettable, undecided -- >> that tiny number. >> that's what they want to see. they want to see a system that works. and when you have frankly, someone who is brash and outspoken and conservative, working with a president who's supposed to be polarizing, christie and obama working together with a single focus, i think it actually encourages people about politics, about government, and about these two individuals. because it does take leaders, it does take individuals, full credit to the two men involved. >> indeed. i would say a hearty amen to that. eugene, the president has been pretty evenhanded in the way he's responded to this storm. he tells fema, no bureaucracy, no red tape. he tells the governors

and local governments. we're making sure that food and water and emergency generation is available. i'm confident that we're ready, but i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. >> and with that lengthy cleanup in mind, the president was asked about the potential impact on the quickly approaching election. >> the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives, that our search and rescue teams are going to be in place, that people are going to get the food, the water, the shelter they need in case of emergency and that we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> as for mitt romney, he and paul ryan have canceled events tonight and tomorrow, but earlier in ohio governor romney did extend his concern and sympathy. >> on the eastern coast of our nation a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times, and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> indeed. prayers are always important, but even more so if romney were to b

out of kilter there but was being fairly reasonable with a rather jumped up local reporter. but isn't it the case that every ailment in society according to paul ryan is solved by tax cuts? everything from leprosy to the deficit? >> i think that's his you view. >> so that was a fair interaction. >> one of the problems we have is sort of the jumpiness. andrew sullivan finds a poll, freaks out, and you kind of got to tell him to fall back, and i saw at least on buzz feed they originally ran with the big headline that ryan stormed out of this interview and then people said, well, he ended it early. you get caught up on those kerfuffles. it's a clear illustration of his view. i don't think he was out of line in the way he answered the question. he pointed only to charities to solve these problems. there's reames of research that shows local charities do great work but they cannot conquer the kind of issue that is were on the table there. >> i don't know, to that point, the specific elements of the ryan budget as voted through the house for the fiscal period up to 2013 actually would evi

of it, if you're living in ohio, you're getting a lot more local feedback, a ground game from the obama campaign, local press from these visits. you're not swung as much by a single debate performance even though romney had a good one. in iowa and ohio, we're seeing over five-point leads, beyond the margin of error for obama. there's a good reason to think if he sews up the midwest, this thing won't be that close. >> yeah. dana, is it possible the president could lose the popular vote and win this election? >> well, no, because the supreme court by a vote of 5-4 would overturn the results in that case. but, you know -- >> of course! >> that's what would happen, but it's theoretically possible given that the national polls are very tight and obama seems to be doing better in key battleground states. more likely the electoral college will just exaggerate or over emphasize the way the vote was going but it's always possible. >> professor dyson, i have to ask you in your metaphor of surgery was quite delicious and brilliant as i would expect of a man of your substance but i have to ask you

expenditure for employers, you know, state and local, medical, there's so many -- >> charitable contributions. there are plenty he can give us if he wants to, just tell us. >> so, you know, again, what i think bothers me so much about this is not that -- they have a tax plan, but they're afraid to actually tell us how their tax plan would work because the truth, the truth with actually legitimate arithmetic, would imply that either taxes are going to have to go up for the middle class or you're going to have a larger budget deficit, and you're going to be closing a lot of loopholes that people care about. so it's politics as usual and it's extremely unfort na in this climate. >> we have had a further embellish frment mr. ryan today. on a radio program he said he didn't want to explain the math and i'm quoting him, because he was afraid people would change the channel. is he -- sorry, jared, to point this out, but is he now saying voters simply don't care about the smshs, they're not interested, they're bored by the details? >> look, he's just trying to dance his way -- look, i'm not the one t

in the next fiscal year. two-thirds of that money will go to local tv and radio stations, some of which broadcast in poor regions of the country and would have to close their doors without this funding. pbs says that comes down to $1.35 per year per person. not a bad deal in any economy. stay with us. the day's "top lines" are coming up. >>> from a smorgasbord of debate comedy to fudges those job numbers, here are today's "top lines," clear eyes, full hearts might lose. >> you have to hand it to mitt romney. president obama sure did. >> it's masterful, theatrical performance. >> my plan is different. it involves six reversals of position and three outright lie approximates. >> soo person acting job. >> i can't believe i forgot the anniversary gift. this is bad. >> governor romney said he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> no, you two go ahead. it looks like he took my million and spent it all on weed. >> where but on pbs can you find abbey. >> air, soul, thin. >> you are a badass mother [ bleep ]. >> when are people with pre-existing medical conditions. loser, people

it with a local reporter from flint, michigan. he's bound to be confronted tonight, is it he not, perry? how will he react when the pressure begins to come down from mr. biden? >> this is one of the big questions tonight is paul ryan has been on the stage before but never such a big stage like tonight. joe biden, of course, was -- has been vice president, has been the vice presidential debates. the challenge is biden is going to confront him and be more specific on the tax plan and the way romney is going to cut the budget and i think ryan is going to be able to respond to that. biden is going to be very forceful tonight and i think ryan's challenge is to remain calm and concise in the face of that. i also think the moderator will be tougher on pinning ryan down, the details, than maybe jim lehrer was last week. those are two important things to watch. >> okay. final question to both of you gentlemen, and be brief if you can, michael, who is going to win tonight, biden or ryan? >> my prediction is it's going to be a close call. you will have some people on both sides saying each candidate on

, where he's been honing his skills since saturday. his only break, a half hour visit on sunday to a local campaign office where he delivered food and made phone calls to volunteers. the president knows that he must halt romney's recent momentum with this race now looking tighter than the locks on his opponent's car elevator. new national polls show a close contest. in a new "washington post"/abc news poll the president leads romney 49% to 46%. but that edge shrinking to just one point, 49% to 48%, in a politico/george washington university battleground poll. the two surveys show different results out of the battleground states. the post poll has the president up by five points, 51% to 46%. in the gw poll, he trails by two, 50% to 48%. but perhaps the news that's bringing real moisture to mitt romney's tear ducts, voters are finally seeing him as a little likable. in the gw survey, romney's fa r favorability is now above water. 50% view him favorably. 44% unfavorably. >> can't deny the fact that you like me right now, you like me! >> sorry, a bit of sally field there perhaps channeling a

local angles but on the larger argument i don't think they have a good retort, and i think obama is winning -- i think more people are believing him on the question of bankruptcy for detroit. >> i think, mike, that may be because the president was telling the truth because when mitt romney used the word "guarantee" last night, that was a felicitous and sophisticated untruth because you and i know there was no private equity to save the motor industry. steve rattner, who was in that team of people begging private investors, wrote an op-ed in "the new york times" and explained there was nobody. >> yeah. i think that's right. i think that's what it comes down to is, you know, this was true of a lot of things in the economy at the time. it was a big rationale for the stimulus, that the private sector -- there was a huge vacuum where an influx of money was needed to save the auto industry, to prevent the economy from collapsing totally, and only the government really had the resources and the luxury and the economic ability to step in and fill that gap. so on the specific example it w

. they're in close contact with federal, state, and local officials. they will make sure that we get the resources to those families as swiftly as possible. >> mayor reed, so the red cross know what is it's doing. did you detect, perhaps, a subtle dig on mr. romney who spent today going against the guidelines established by the red cross and holding a campaign rally in ohio that was dressed up like a charity drive collecting food and other supplies when the red cross expressly asked people not to do that? >> well, what i think the president was doing was being commander in chief, and he continues to distinguish himself as someone who is focused on the needs of everyday americans, and this is more important to him even than the presidency. that's why he's going to be traveling to the site personally. that's why he had multiple personal conversations with the governor of new jersey. i think that this is yet another moment where you see the clear, striking difference between a president who has a heart for the american people and someone who simply wants to be president of the united st
